Episode Info

The programme begins with Episode Thlee of Erizabeth L, featuring Sir Flancis Dlake and the Spanish Almada. The Fraud Film Squad arrests a man for impersonating Lucino Visconti, and the Salvation Fuzz likewise swings into action. An old lady prepares a dead-rat dessert for her husband, while her son reports the presence of a dead bishop. This leads to an impromptu jungle expedition, where a deadly battle with a gorilla is replaced by a scene from "Ken Russell's Garden Club -- 1958." Once the identity of the phony Visconti is established, police remain baffled by a man who claims to be Michelangelo Antonioni. And after the closing credits roll, it's off to The Argument Clinic (no, it isn't!) and a surprise appearance by Inspector Fox of the Light Entertainment Police (Comedy Division, Spec. Flying Squad). Also featuring Rita Davies, Carol Cleveland and The Fred Tomlinson Singers (who perform "The Money Song"), "The Money Programme" was originally broadcast November 2, 1972.
